Whoever said only 20 somethings can wear the latest trends? Or that women “over a certain age” should only wear pastels and neutrals? First of all, that’s not true. It so happens that I’m a 44-year-old fashion blogger and have no intention to retire anytime soon. Nowadays more and more women over 40 are at their most creative and self-confident time. Indeed, at 40, we’re just getting started!
For example, People magazine recently declared 49-year-old Julia Roberts as 2017’s most beautiful woman. Similarly, Nicole Kidman is 50 and looks better than ever. Equally, Michelle Obama, Brigitte Trogneux, Helen Mirren, look amazing. And that’s just to name a few! Besides, the quality of life has improved so much the past couple of decades. People look and feel more youthful than in previous times.
As a result, “middle aged” has been replaced with “perennials”. To put it another way, we are here now. Active and creative. And let’s not forget, we’re the age group with the most buying power! After all, who are today’s women in their 40s? But none other than grown up GenX girls! So, why expect anything less?
In short, these are my favourite fashion bloggers over the age of 40. And over 50 or 60 or more! I mean, why not?
